Kim had a great suggestion, which eases the application of new lubricant
to heat sink fans. Tilt the radio such that the central fan bearing is
pointing UP, before you heat up the fan to suck in new lubricant on the
cool down step.
The Fans at Mouser are so good and reasonably priced, that getting a new
fan overnight is a most time saving step. Match the overall dimensions
with the old fan. The new fans have a ball bearing model.
I have done the fan rejuvenation a number of times but last few timees,
I bouight new fans, and also rejuvenated the old one. That way, I have
plenty of spares for future use.
